Here is some more readily available information that our journalistic sleuths appear incapable of uncovering.

(Try searching for VITAB to cut to the chase).

Curious.

You would think that a nexus between Waterhouses, Bob Hawker, Saint Gianna, Seljuk Timur Reengage and SP bookmakers that redirected funding away from schools, hospitals and the racing industry might be considered newsworthy.

Here's the gist of one incident mentioned in Fossen's research report:

Vanuatu granted 3 tote licences to:

Allan Tripp - convicted numerous times of illegal SP betting.

Christopher Chung - convicted for importing prostitutes, and exporting contaminated seafood.

VITAB - beneficiary ownership unfathomable - run by Peter Bartholomew, Tripp's brother in law.


Chung cut a kickback deal with VicTAB.

VITAB's 11% owner Hawke cut a kickback deal with ACTTAB.
VITAB's 20% owner and biggest customer was Zeljko plus sidekick.

When the ACT parliament kyboshed the scam, VITAB sued, and ACT taxpayers forked out over $3 million to settle.

With so much defamatory material flourishing here, you've decided to censor names from a Hansard Report!

I trust some of you are enjoying the parallel debate at the Betfair forum.

Don't worry. I expect normal service will resume here eventually.

I'd love to tell you about my feelings, but I fear that would be in breach of the forum T&C.

However I'm prepared to volunteer that one thing I don't like is our journalistic sleuths' jaundice.

They have gone to extraordinary lengths to keep mum about pertinent facts such as the VITAB scandal, and a few more I could mention.

The story in the papers was a 'feelgood' story of a man who has beaten the odds in the punting game and made a fortune.
It is not a bad thing for the industry as a whole to have stories of hope in the paper, keeps the mugs thinking they can do it too.

Robert James Lee Hawke:

"I have found them honourable and decent and competent men with whom to deal ... as distinct from
some of these loose lipped politicians around the place who want to cast aspersions at least on Mr
Bartholomew, all I can say is I have found him an honourable, decent, intelligent and competent
man."

Yet Peter James Bartholomew was a convicted criminal mentioned in the Costigan Report!

Hardly makes me "feel good" .

Any thread on ZR brings some interesting posters out of the woodwork, a couple of first time posters in 7out and value, and a couple of idiots in The Aussie Bricklayer (TAB for short) and me apparently.  :)

An intriguing personality in the VITAB debacle is Daniel Kolomanski.

http://www.crispinhull.com.au/1994/08/08/1994_08_august_kolo/

Apparently very lucky in lotteries.

Also his persuasiveness has nor deserted him over the years, as he now appears to be very much in the thick of major property redevelopments in Melbourne.

How does Paul Makin rank with Zeljko, does he punt in a similar fashion, the few article that have talked about his punting suggest he may do ?

According to Alan Woods- Paul Makin 'persuaded' an employee to come over and work for him and bring across a version of the software. Paul Makin says 'he can't lose' on the USA races (similar track sizes, surfaces) he bets on. Of course the Woods, Zeljko analysis has the same origin but I believe Humbleton has progressed a lot more in recent years. So as far as I know Makin is US only.

It seems that Australia has produced some of the best and most succesful 'punters' in the world ever.
I guess we really are the lucky country  :lol:

Apparently Zeljko has just been inducted to the Blackjack Hall of Fame.

Seems to have ruffled some feathers at relevant forums.

Theres an article in today's Weekend Australian Magazine about Tasmanian-born artlover David Walsh, whose backround sounds remarkably similar to that described here. :whistle:

There's a whole thread hereabouts titled Citizen Walsh.

If I knew how to I'd link it here. :blush:

Ah ha, found it. Maybe he should include an actual TAB oulet, replete with punters, as an installation piece in MONA to show where the funds came from.   :lol:

This discussion questions the merits of Zeljko's induction, even suggesting that this is somehow related to some investment in Barona - the Native American Californian Casino connected to Rubin where this Hall resides.


http://www.blackjackinfo.com/bb/showthread.php?t=12677&page=2

That seems entirely plausible to me.

Zeljko has made a number of subtle forays into controlling Casinos and Totes, while refusing to undergo a probity check.

However, perhaps emboldened by New York's inability to detect his role in the VITAB fraud, he is successfully reinventing himself, enabling him to cut himself an even bigger slice of your presumed wealth.

Here are some further insights into Zeljko's syndicate.

Poker champion David Steicke and vigneron Ray Gatt.

The first time I've seen them publicly named.

As mentioned before on this thread, David Walsh already has a guernsey here.

Evidently Mamacas is a poker player. If not a restaraunteur.

Philip Turner is about as googleable as John Wilson. But might have some poker associations.
